Per 'ABE' Abrahamsen in Mojo Blues
In 1972 Dr. Otala and Dr. Lohstroh finished their work in analysing transistor amplifiers to determine what actully created the "transistor sound" in general transistorised designs. The results of their innovative design work were incorporated in the legendary 25 watt amplifier. This product was the first commercial transistor amplifier to use this new design approach, and the amplifier was immediately recognised as dramatically more musical sounding than any other transistor amplifier. The same design philosophy, has been constantly updated by additional research and development.
After the 25 watt amplifier had established a new standard for transistor amplifiers, research was undertaken to find ways to make the amplifier even better, and to extend its highly musical sound quality to more powerful amplifier designs.
This philosophy forms the basis of the new Abrahamsen design.

Our Work Process
In our research of what separates the great designers from good designers, we saw that the great designers spent a lot more time trying to understand the problem. They really dove in deep, focusing on all the aspects of how their design would be used.
Design is sometimes thought to be about form, style, and how things look, but it’s also very much about function, or what something does. With new technologies making it possible to develop new functions, this is now more true than ever.
A dedicated staff of incoming, intermediate and finished product quality inspectors and auditors ensures that Abrahamsen's products are manufactured to exact specifications. We have chosen to work with only a few suppliers that share our commitment to high quality.
Abrahamsen maintains an extensive set of internal controls to ensure that products are designed, manufactured and supported to the highest standards. This way we are in control of the entire production process ensuring the highest quality every step of the way.
